Re: Why do the Klingons have equal technology to the Federation
Kirk surrendered to the Klingons and put himself at the mercy of the sham Klingon justice system. I haven't seen that Archer in jail episode but I suspect it was a similar frame up.
Do you think the Klingons care so much about justice that they seek out individuals well outside Klingon space?
The obvious explaination is that Klingon space is pourous to trade or is made up of subject spieces and criminals from that group end up on Rura Penthe.
